Spring is a mere 27 days away. Yes. In less than a month we will be able to finally have a renewed hope. In this season of winter – there is still hope coming – even if it doesn’t feel like it.

How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.
Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
and your righteousness to the upright of heart!

It’s just a phrase but we all do it…we feel uncomfortable so we discharge our blame on whomever. How do we, I, charge through life when blame, anger, injustice, hurt and hate deep loathing exists in our own homes? How do we come to this objective discourse?
In human terms – I had a raging argument with a close family member today. It was horrible. The searing madness of my anger, blood boiling and heart pounding emotions churned out the hateful words – “Get out of my face” – soon turned to feelings of guilt and shame, “Where is your grace, Lord?”
I was already feeling upset about another situation from earlier in the day – that I couldn’t jump into the issue at hand – I passed the buck or maybe I didn’t. I don’t know. How do I seek peace and true joy in the midst of chaotic madness – which I have only fueled with my own short comings? I have not acted in love –
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. Romans 13:8
It is so hard to be authentic – when there is so much blame, anger and judgement.

The hilarity of it only continued…
…as said child asked….
“Why does “this” keep coming out?”
Unsure of how to respond, I said, “You’re boogies?” Yeah, she said.
So yes, I had a small (but meaningful) discussion about mucus and its purposes for keeping your y healthy.
“It’s gross.”, she said. I know, there’s a lot of it in your body and it’s supposed to stay inside your body. But when you’re sick it comes out and it helps to keep boo boos out of your nose. “Well, its yucky.”
So what else can I say…its mucus…
